Restaurant Montserrat L'Estartit

Known by the name ‘Can Sala’ until the end of the XIX century, the ground floor consisted of a tavern style hostel and in its centre were a post-office and tobacconist. Pep the local blacksmith had his workshop and forge and Martí Elias the local carpenter also crafted wood there.

One of the floors at the top of the building was designed as a dance hall and on the other floor were bedrooms to accommodate guests.

In 1939 the house was converted almost exclusively into an inn and changed its name to ‘Fonda Montserrat’, by which it is still known today.

The property has been owned by the Basieras Parera family for many generations and is still managed and owned by them to this present day.

In 1967 the Basieras Parera family founded and created ‘Hotel Flamingo’ to supply demand for the Costa Brava tourist boom.

Currently the establishment is being run by the third generation of the family
